The sunny side we also may view

Typical road trip conversation*:

Me: Look over there, at that old church/house/cemetery/etc.!

Patient Spouse: What? Where?

Me: OK. You have to make a u-turn.

Patient Spouse:

And that’s how I got this shot.

Depths (dead K-Mart)

Well, this was a rare treat – a chance to get inside an old K-Mart store (which I’ve named “dead K-Mart” because that’s the way my mind works). I’d previously peeked through the doors of this place, but being inside was a whole new perspective.

This is the first of four images from this place. Don’t worry, though, it was a sanctioned visit and I didn’t get arrested or anything like that.

I guess these signs clear things up pretty well: employees are supposed to park here. Except they aren’t.

I’m a little dizzy…

Taking the low road

The glass in the door of this place was gone and someone had nailed up a piece of wood over the hole. Well, nearly over the hole: there was a bit of a gap at the bottom. A camera-sized gap. If you know what I’m getting at here.

(I thought the photo was going to be about those left-over cars, but now I am starting to think it’s really about that metal ceiling, hanging in tatters.)

One more shot from this magnificent place – the canyon and lake are below, the city of Lubbock is in the distance, and rain will shortly wash all of it.
